For all the nonsense in the world regarding movers who break things, steal things and generally do not care about your personal belongings, there is something to be said for the movers who do take care of things and make sure that their clients are happy and well cared for.
Long distance movers, of course, are the most scrutinized because they often spend the most time with the customer. They have the most responsibility to move things that are not being stored in pods. They are moving a household, and in some cases, a life of things that holds much importance to the person or people it belongs to.
For the most part, movers can be tolerable if they are polite and respectful of a customer and their possessions. It can be tough to clean or pack with the help of movers if you like things done a certain way, but it is not impossible. It can be tough to watch them pack a van or truck filled to the brim with all your earthly possessions, but again it is not impossible. The best way to test a moving company and their movers is to find one that has been used by someone you trust or has been rated very highly for quality.
Quality is the foremost word in much of customer service and it goes a long way to making a client happy and stress free during their move. If a team of movers is trained correctly and has the importance of client and quality instilled early on, they will absolutely be recommended highly in online surveys, website ratings and word of mouth. It is not that hard to make people happy as a team of movers. You just have to work with them and listen to what they want and need.
